You should always lock your doors, but you might want to wait if you own a Fun Runner trailer.

Carson Trailer, Inc. of Gardena, CA is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Fun Runner trailers due to a door lock malfunction. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that can jam the deadbolt.

A jammed deadbolt can lead to the jamming of more locks, potentially locking occupants inside the trailer. Use of the emergency exit would then be required, increasing the risk of injury.

The lock is manufactured by the Johnson City, TN-based company Fastec. Carson estimates that about 430 units are affected.

Carson will notify trailer owners, while Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the locks, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Customers may contact Carson at (310) 516-6046 or Fastec at (800) 837-2505.
